The Hunger Games
The Hunger Games was an action packed book that I couldn’t put down. I think that even though the book is almost 400 pages long, everyone would enjoy this book… or at least the movie. The Hunger Games take place in the “future” and the city of Panem has a capitol and 12 districts surrounding it. Due to the previous uprisings, the districts each have to send one boy and one girl to compete in a battle of life and death and only one can win. Or can there be more? What I learned from this book is how much the Capitol has, compared to what the districts have is kind of how our countries work today. Where some are rich and some are poor. I liked Katniss because she decided to save Peeta and keep him alive instead of killing him even when he was playing the careers. This book will leave you on the edge of your seat as the hunger games begin.
